Tried both the west & east quarries. Walking/casting a jig (1/16'' and pink tube bait) tipped with a minnow I caught four small (5 - 10'') Largemouth on the West side, and just one crappie on the East side. Followed the sourthern shoreline at both quarries. Most anglers I saw were using floats and not having much action. Did get one second hand report of someone who saw someone catch some small gills and a trout using redworms. *Sigh* will I ever catch a stinking trout from a CCFP lake :oops:

Image of the one stinking crappie I caught below. I think it is a black crappie (not a white in spawning colors) as it looks like 7 spines on the dorsal fin:

Thats a decent crappie Oz, and your pictures are turning out excellent. Are you still building all your fish ID's from real images?

Yep, any fish going on my web site has to be caught within a CCFP lake(although the DesPlaines should count also) . Now all I have to do is catch enough different species to even bother publishing some web pages.

Don't look at your watch, look at your calendar :roll:
